A Helpful Guide to Games

Here's a helpful guide to figuring out where you'd like to start in the wonderful world of tabletop gaming.

You are new to boardgames and just want to play simple fun games, then you can try Settlers of Catan, a classic dice-rolling game with negotiation and trading (up to 6 players) or Ticket to Ride, a railroad building game with a variety of maps from India to Australia to North America (up to 5 players)

You have some experience with games and want to try medium difficulty games, something with a bit more flavour and theme and perhaps more difficult mechanics than just dice rolling or set building, then maybe Agricola, a game similar to Farmville but with far more rules and opportunities, is for you(up to 6 players) or Seven Wonders, a card drafting civilization building game that can be played quickly inside of a lunch hour but has tough decisions to make every turn (7 players)

You would like a little bit more interaction in your games, perhaps a little backstabbing, bluffing, conniving, and making new enemies with Coup, a secret identity game with players trying to rise to power through eliminating other players. (up to 9 players) or Kremlin, a secret voting game with players trying to get a politician under their control to become the Party Chief in control of the Kremlin, all the while purging and mistrusting their opponents' politicians. (up to 6 players)

You are with your besties or your mother in law and would love to holler your lungs out while playing a game, then have a go at Panic on Wall Street,a cutthroat stock market game (up to 11 players) or Resistance, a social deduction game heavy on player interaction (up to 14 players)

You would not like backstabbing nor screaming (what would your mother in law think?). How about some cooperative team play? Play Pandemic and assume the role of either a medic, specialist, dispatcher, researcher among a dozen others and try to contain deadly viruses and prevent epidemics (up to 5 players) or Forbidden desert and survive a deadly desert with shifting dunes and scarce water supply. Everybody wins or everyone loses. (5 players)

You want action and adventure, and you want swords and sorcery, or Elder God madness, try role-playing with the FATE system, the Savage Worlds rule-set, or the new Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition rule system. Become a warlock, hellfire investigator, mercenary, or a hundred other characters in new worlds limited only by your imagination and built in pen and paper and lived through the role of the dice and your wits.
